Robb hesitated. “The Greatjon thinks we should take the battle to Lord Tywin and surprise him,” he said, “but the Glovers and the Karstarks feel we’d be wiser to go around his army and join up with Uncle Ser Edmure against the Kingslayer.” He ran his fingers through his shaggy mane of auburn hair, looking unhappy.

Prepare yourself for epic conflicts between the unique personalities of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire! Where Loyalty Lies, the fourth exciting Chapter Pack in the A Tale of Champions cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, is now on sale at your local retailer and online on our webstore.

Keep your house in order

A Game of Thrones: The Card Game immerses players in the conflicts between the six Great Houses of Westeros. Your rivals constantly strive to undercut you with secret intrigues and bloody military battles, so it’s vital that you keep your house united against your foes. Still, a lord must keep his bannermen in line, a task not always so simply managed.

Where Loyalty Lies introduces powerful unique characters for each house who represent rival interests. The Baratheons divide between old faith and new, Clegane confronts Clegane in House Lannister, and Robb Stark must work to appease both Greatjon Umber (Where Loyalty Lies, 61) and Rickard Karstark (Where Loyalty Lies, 62).

Both of these warriors swear their allegiance to House Stark, but their individual goals stand at ends. As Robb Stark declares himself King of the North, he needs every arrow in his quivers in order to stare down House Lannister, the Greyjoys, Stannis Baratheon, and all others who would contend his right to rule. On the other hand, Rickard Karstark seeks vengeance for the loss of his sons, and little will satisfy him other than the blood of his foes. Accordingly, he does not kneel to attack during military challenges and claims power each times his foes fall before his blade. For all the intrigues in the realms, he has little patience, storming off until the time comes for battle.

The Greatjon, meanwhile, offers a different take on the battles on every front, and he gives House Stark different council entirely. Ready to launch into battle and take advantage of his foes’ confusion, the Greatjon has the Melee keyword, which grants him one bonus strength for every defender in the challenge. Despite his eagerness to fight, the Greatjon stands as Robb Stark’s staunchest supporter, even when Stark’s decisions go against him. Likewise, the Greatjon can kneel to join a challenge as a defender, and if he does so during a melee game while your Title supports the defending player’s Title, he gains power.

Vengeance or patience

Power through vengeance, or power through patience. The decision facing House Stark is just one of the many illustrated through the flavorful new characters and events of Where Loyalty Lies.

 Still, the Karstark's power in melee is fearsome indeed! His claim to fame does not have to be gotten from his own sword-work even.
I sense that he will generate quite a bit of hate in that format.

 without a lot more support for no agenda play, he is not worth the 4 gold. the greatjon, by comparison, is fantastic... probably twice as good as the old one even...

The new Greatjon is the superior one. And that he combos with the Smalljon for 2 Melee's is awesome.

Love the War crest and Melee on Umber!!! I feel like this one is much better than the Core set version and I've been clamoring for a new Greatjon for awhile. Thumbs up FFG
